The kitties got an early Thanksgiving breakfast. Someone is looking like I woke him up too early! Nostrildamus and his sibling were sleeping in the cat house. From the red light on the timer, I could see that the heater was on. Now I'm thinking of getting a thermometer to put inside, facing the window. … Continue reading Happy Canadian Thanksgiving weekend!
I hope you all had a wonderful day today, even if you had to celebrate it in a different way than usual. This morning, the basket was assembled, and I found an English translation of the traditional Polish blessings of the contents (my Polish is not good enough anymore!). Then it was time to lay … Continue reading Wishing you a happy and blessed Easter!
I know I should be in bed right now, but I had a few setbacks. Problems with the van being the most obvious one, but also, I had difficulties typing. My husband got evidence as to why. Susan decided she absolutely HAD to drape herself across me as I tried to type. She particularly felt … Continue reading Easter preparations and difficulty typing
I'm happy to say that I was able to deliver a little care package to my mother for her Easter. I called right after dropping off my daughter to see if she needed anything at the grocery store, but she was able to order everything she needed from the grocery store and have it delivered. … Continue reading Easter preparations and successful finds
Today, while the girls continued to work on the basement (I have yet to go down to see their progress!), I worked on baking our Easter bread. Then, since I was baking anyway, I made some sourdough soda bread, and another double batch of what has become my usual standby, a basic bread recipe modified … Continue reading Easter preparations: baking day and frozen ground
One of the bonuses of our move to the farm I grew up on is that we could take part in a childhood tradition; the blessing of our Easter baskets. It was many moves and many years before we were able to find a Polish church that did basket blessings, and be able to take … Continue reading Preparing for Easter, and an easier way to peel eggs!
Of course, things have been busy for the past while, even though we try to keep Christmas and New Year's very low key. I finally have some time to settle in at the computer, so I'm going to take advantage of that and catch up in things. I'll be going backwards in time, for the … Continue reading This and That
A great big Happy New Year to all our wonderful visitors and followers! May 2020 be a year of peace and good health to you and your loved ones. Out of all the millions of blogs out there, you chose to pop over and visit our little corner of the world, and I just wanted … Continue reading A Year in Review
Our family traditionally starts celebrating when the first star is visible in the sky on Christmas Eve. The Photo of the Day will go on hiatus for a few days. Since I will likely not be posting at all over the next few days, I wish to take this opportunity to with you and yours … Continue reading Photo of the Day: Christmas Eve sunrise
We are a bit behind on our Christmas decorating this year. Usually, we start at least by Nov. 27 (the Feast of St. Catherine). However, this Christmas is a first for 3 felines. So we set up the tree, but left it alone. We didn't even fluff out the branches. The idea being, the cats … Continue reading All bent out of shape
